Dale’s Pale Ale

American Pale Ale

Rating: B+

Poured from can to pint glass.

Very amber in color.  The foamy, off-white head was comprised of medium-large bubbles; good retention and nice lacing.  The aroma is very hoppy and floral with a bit of plum.  The taste is hoppy, malty and resiny with a tad of citrus and caramel.  The beer is fairly balanced, but might be a little on the hoppy side.  Medium body with medium carbonation.  The finish is bitter but satisfying.  The beer seems to almost border on an American Amber.  The packaging was deceiving.  I would encourage Oskar Blues to hire a marketing company.
